Each item of furniture is painstakingly assembled by hand incorporating the natural imperfections which in turn become cherished possessions and heirlooms for tomorrow.
This unique piece was hand made in Zimbabwe. No factories or machinery was involved in the production process, only artisans and hand tools with painstaking detail and precision. This piece is made out of natural materials and is free from any fillers, dyes, stains, or varnishes.

More than a century ago, Jarrah wood was imported to Africa from Australia to build railways. These railways ploughed across Africa, swallowing up unlimited amounts of precious hardwoods which had been growing and maturing since ancient times. Since Jarrah wood is an immensely dense timber, it was subjected to the full rigors of a sub-tropical climate. Nature herself stamped each sleeper with its own individual character. Its distinctive blend of beauty and practicality lends it to use for both elegant furniture and innovative construction. Jarrah is an excellent choice for everything from tables and desks, to countertops and cabinets, to headboards and doors.
